Dragons and Templars have come and gone so now it’s Arthurian legend’s turn to come to life at the Royal Fortress of Chinon.

Legend has it that King Arthur gave the Loire Valley to his loyal squire Cheudon (the story goes that Cheudon is pronounced “Kainon” meaning “Chinon” in Frankish) who had a fortress built and named after him.
